Take your time to enjoy the imagery of this two pitch arête right of Ridge with a View. The first pitch starts with a well-protected traverse right to gain the arête, which is followed for a 100 feet to a belay from gear. Although Viewmaster is a separate line, at one point a reach left allows the use of the bolt on Ridge with a View (consider using a runner). Maybe 5.7, but barely. The second pitch gains and climbs the summit block arête.


Draws, a full-length runner for the bolt on Ridge with a View, and a No. 1 and 2 (red and gold) Camalot for the first pitch belay.

Just curious, isn't a #2 and 3 the gold and blue camalots? Thanks for the new additions to the canyons, I look forward to giving these a go! Aug 6, 2016

Good catch L. Too old. I'll make the change. Aug 13, 2016

This route was terrifying to lead, but exhilarating. You have to set up a belay using a #2 and a #3 near Ridge With a View, off of a loose ledge where if you take a fall you'll be plummeting to your doom. There are a few points where you don't want to fall, but they are on easy terrain for the most part. The exposure is insane and the views are glorious. Not for the faint of heart. May 26, 2018
